The Valley of the Beautiful Woman, where there are almost two hundred cellars, has been closely related to the reputation of the famous wines of Eger.
We are walking around the area and trying to taste various wines of Eger.
There’re a lot of legends related to the name of the valley of the Beautiful Woman.
According to the local tradition of peasants, there was a woman who used to sell her good wine here in a cellar. Others say the valley got its name after the light nice lady of a noble villa.
According to a local ethnographer, “Beautiful Woman” was goddess of the ancient religion, goddess of love, similar to Venus. Sacrifices were shown to her here.
Egri Bikavér is a red blend produced in Eger. It is the true essence of the red wines of Eger, a terroir wine, which carries the flavour of the soils of local production sites, the mezzo-climate unique to the region and the traditions and mores of local residents, from the selection of varieties to choosing the period and method of grape processing and mellowing.
The place of Valley of the Beautiful Woman is very nice. Good wine, delicious food, delightful locals and women are beautiful! I’d like to come back here someday.
